Crowley knew FMC's ways could serve them better.

Nobody had ever built what Crowley Maritime Corporation wanted: a triple-deck cargo barge. 580 feet long. 57 feet deep, with a beam of 105 feet. But Crowley knew FMC's ways could serve them better, so FMC is building two of them for Trailer

Marine Transport Corporation, a Crowley Company.

We're an efficient yard, doing a big job. with 650-foot, side launch ways, the largest on the West Coast. And our 200-ton crane is something you don't see everyday!

Because we're just the right size to serve you. we can schedule jobs efficiently and deliver on time. And we have the people, knowledge and equipment to deliver a quality product.

Crowley counted on that. too.

FMC quality goes into everything we build. And if we can handle the world's largest Ro-Ro barges, we can handle your particular job. See how FMC's ways can serve you better. Call or write Vice President of Sales. FMC Corporation. Marine and
